  • ...EXPECT A WET WEEKEND ACROSS EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN
    COLORADO...
    THE WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL CHANGE BACK TO COOL AND WET
    WEATHER THIS WEEKEND. A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM ALONG THE COAST
    OF SOUTHER CALIFORNIA WILL DRAW MOISTURE INTO OUR AREA FROM TWO
    TROPICAL STORMS IN THE EASTERN PACIFIC.
    MOISTURE FROM TROPICAL STORM ANDRES WILL REACH THE FOUR CORNERS
    REGION LATE TONIGHT AND FRIDAY MORNING AND SPREAD ACROSS MUCH OF
    THE FORECAST AREA ON FRIDAY. WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
    ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP...WITH LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL POSSIBLE
    THROUGH SATURDAY. THE SOUTHERN VALLEYS AND MOUNTAINS WILL SEE THE
    BEST POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAINFALL.
    SUNDAY...THE REMNANTS OF HURRICANE BLANCA MAY BE SWEPT NORTHWARD
    INTO THE REGION. FORECAST CONFIDENCE REMAINS LOW WITH THIS
    MOISTURE SURGE AS CURRENT MODELS DRIVE THE DEEPEST MOISTURE TO
    OUR SOUTHEAST.
    RECENT HIGH MOUNTAIN SNOWMELT...COMBINED WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR
    HEAVY RAINFALL WILL INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING...
    ESPECIALLY ALONG SMALLER CREEKS AND STREAMS. REMEMBER...IF YOU
    ENCOUNTER WATER OVER ROADS...TURN AROUND DONT DROWN.
    ANYONE PLANNING WEEKEND ACTIVITIES ACROSS EASTERN UTAH AND
    WESTERN COLORADO SHOULD OBTAIN THE LATEST FORECASTS BEFORE
    VENTURING OUT. FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION...VISIT OUR WEBSITE AT
